Default The Sickest Rims

RacingHarts CP-035R, 18''. (www.dazzmotorsports.com)

-By far the dopest rims for the rex. Check em out, I dont see how any one can say their not. Plus how can you lose with a chromed out wrx. The rims are the same one that ImportTuner threw on their project wrx wagon. Got to figure out how much they cost. laters.

Agreed. I wont let chrome get anywhere near my rex, especialy on the outside like that. But thats just my 2 cents.

Import Tuner installed them on their project WRX but that doesn't mean "other" tuners like us will like 'em.

It doesn't say chrome at all. It is just Brilliant Buffed Finish (BBF) which I'm sure is just a very high polish to it. They wouldn't be stupid and chrome a forged aluminum wheel. Well, I've seen it done, but this isn't the case for this wheel. Maybe not the absolute best, but it would look good. Any pics of the Import Tuner wagon?

Yep, chrome just doesnt seem like something that should be on an import car to me. And yes Ryan I did look at the rims, and still dont like them that much. Sorry but thats just my 2 cents.

they look like rota subzeros
probably cost double that of the subzeros, and probably weigh more as well.

Judge what you all may, but IT ISN'T CHROME!!!!! Here is a pic of that Import Tuner wagon. It's hard for me to tell, because I don't like big lips like that, and it looks like it hasn't been lowered with coilovers yet.

i really don't like the way the rims looks BUT, these rims are one of the best rims ever made. they are VERY light weight and VERY strong. a lot of the race cars in Japan use them so they have to be pretty good. the ROTA'S are indeed a knockoff of these rims and weigh more than them. also, the price for the rims is about $600 EACH so they are not cheap at all.

As if Rota was an original. In the end, a set of Rotas or a single Racing Hart? That's why Rotas are so dang popular. And you know, I'd say those Rotas ARE about the most popular on the board here.

I don't think those rims are chrome. They appear to be polished. Nonetheless:

Chrome, Import Tuner, TFATF,.............

Unless you have an SUV, chrome is last year's style...........for luxury cars..........yo.

Heck, why not throw a low blow:

I can so picture alot of SRT-4's running around w/ dibs pretty soon.

The wheels, while they arent bad, dont belong on a rex. But what is really wrong is RyanRock's attitude. It sucks actually. Here's a wake up call for ya buddy....this is not ClubSi or SRTforums

haha ok now I feel like an idiot because their not chromed. But besides I still think those are tied for first along with the OZ superL's on my wheel list.

Its actually the other way around, if i'm not mistaken Racing Hart was the company that first came out with that style.

Default Actually,

they're not that light. I looked at them (in a different finish), but they're expensive and a little heavy. Went with SSRs instead.
